Amazon Synopsis: Dead Dogs Don’t Bark is the second poetry collection from the acclaimed author, Tolu’ A. Akinyemi. With a similar tone and style to Dead Lions Don’t Roar (Tolu’s first poetry collection) this follow up masterpiece is nothing short of pure motivation. The poems cover a range of topics that many in life are aware of, that the Author himself has experienced and that we all, whatever our age, need support in.


Tolu' A. Akinyemi contacted me to read a few of his books and I created this post into a bookhaul. Akinyemi speaks about his life experiences, his spiritual path and lessons in his books. He wrote a novel with a collection of essays and two poetry books that talk about his life experiences. I was given a chance to read his novel and poetry books speaking on his life path and what he has encountered.


My thoughts:


Tolu' A. Akinyemi wrote Unravel Your Hidden Gems, Dead Lions Don’t Roar and Dead Dogs Don’t Bark with the idea of speaking on his experiences with life including disappointment, finding himself and understanding how his spirituality has influenced his life. Each book gave me insight on who the author is because of the common subjects that were discussed in each book. Dead Lions Don’t Roar was a collection of poetry that spoke on dealing with common struggles focusing on career and life changes with adding the Christian faith. Dead Dogs Don’t Bark And They Don’t Bite was a collection of poetry that continued the poetry from Dead Lions Don’t Roar by speaking on life changes, spirituality, relationships and more.

Akinyemi’s book Unravel Your Hidden Gems was another installment that spoke about the same subjects as the poetry books. The book focused on adding the Christian faith into speaking about his experiences and giving the reader advice. The poetry discussed in Dead Lions Don’t Roar and Dead Dogs Don’t Bark was a modern tone that connects spirituality and life experiences which can connect to a certain type of reader. I connected to a handful of the poems that were discussed such as some of the poems that spoke about career and changing your life by looking within. The poems were a similar tone in each book.

In Unravel Your Hidden Gems, there were experiences spoke about in detail that were similar to the poetry books by Akinyemi but in more detail because of the essay forms. The topics discussed in the three books written would relate to readers that are looking for a Christian influential book about life, changes, loss and self empowerment. I could not connect fully to the topics discussed because of the overall message connecting to the experiences but could be different for someone else. Overall, the three books written by Akinyemi is something that could relate to a different reader that is looking for a spiritual book to digest.
